Very pleased with this item, my daughter really enjoyed painting it (although a bit fiddly) and putting it together. Looked very impressive when it was finished.

Very good fun to make. The toy was obviously originally designed with Pluto was a planet and the manufacturer hasn't quite changed all the kit yet - Pluto isn't provided - but there is a pin to attach it and a space on the central column for it. My 10 year-old put it together with minimal help and had great fun painting it - she nearly ran out of the red paint though. It looks fantastic. Highly recommend.

I bought this to make with my grandson,6, who has an interest in the night sky, and he loved it. This definitely needs adult supervision - some of the pieces would not fit together and needed trimming with a Stanley blade, and assembly needs care and to be very methodical. My grandson painted the sun and the planets (after adult mixing of the paint) although Earth is tricky as the seas and land areas need to be different colours. Saturn's rings took a long time to fit as the central hole in the card needs to be cut larger than indicated. There were no English instructions, just two sets of foreign ones, and no wall chart of the solar system as indicated on the box.
My grandson did not lose attention for the two hours (in two sessions) that it took to assemble and paint this model, and was very keen to take it home to proudly show it to the rest of the family.

Bought this for a school project, very educational but not really a toy, would probably get broken quite easily if not looked after

Nice looking packaging and reasonable quality product for price. My 6 year old nephew thought this good and assembled with help from his Dad. He was then able to paint it himself. Only problem we found was that it didn't rotate as it should have and never would because Saturn's rings were too big and crashed into other planets.(All other planets OK and could have been solved by making one planet higher or lower if parts had been available) As long as you accept that Saturn needs to be static this is an excellent model of the solar system for interested children.

I bought this for my 9 years old daughter's Space Project at school (cheating!) and she enjoyed painting it although she did need help putting it together as it was quite fiddly. It did the job and looked good, offering basic planetary information, just right for what I intended it for.

Great Product although a little fiddly even for an 8 year old! The paint is excellent unless previous attempts with this type of thing where painting on plastic has been very brushed out.

Absolute rubbish, far too small and will have no impact whatsoever. Waste of money! I've bought another kit which looks much better but we will wait and see. Very disappointed

I had been reading about the solar system with my children and this was a great way to reinforce what they had learnt. Both loved it - 5 year old boy and 6 year old girl.
